@peterdaou Being from IN, I want to focus on 3 red states here since red states are often very misunderstood #Kentucky #Kansas #Indiana so @Booker4KY @AndyRuffIN9 @KansasBrian....PLEASE GIVE THIS A QUICK READ. 1.) these 3 candidates are the dark horses 🙏🏽🙌🏽 @Booker4KY has FINALLY broken
@peterdaou @Booker4KY @AndyRuffIN9 @KansasBrian through! 2.) Why? Red states aren’t excited by establishment centrist Dems. We find them boring, so younger progressive Dems don’t flock to the polls unless you run a non-traditional, non-establishment type, new type of candidate. 2008 Obama flipped flipped IN blue, total shock
@peterdaou @Booker4KY @AndyRuffIN9 @KansasBrian *at the time* he was the new face on the scene, seemed different, with different ideas, seemed more progressive. He was slow to build momentum here, Hillary won the primary in May since the young voters like myself at the time (generation millennial here) thought he will never

As all future #CleanTheGreens🌻 threads will be posted to this account, I want to repost the entirety of the megathread that started it all for any newcomers who missed a piece of it since it was originally posted over a several days between unrelated posts.
1) This is an ugent PSA for #leftist, #liberals, #Democrats, #independents,#NotMeUs & all supporters of #VoteGreen2020 hoping to qualify for federal 💰 & debate stage time:

#HowieHawkins doesn't want to achieve any of that. We need to save the party from him. #CleanTheGreens🌻
2) This is NOT an attempt to smear all @GreenPartyUS candidates, staff, or organizers. My intention is to spread awareness that #HowieHawkins2020 is the a Hillary Clinton-Debbie Wasserman Schultz political style machine that can and must be stopped NOW. #CleanTheGreens🌻

1/6 Self-loathing (self-hating) #Jews and the existence of #Israel. After WW2 a lot of the #Jewish survivors denied their #Jewishness all together. Converted to Protestantism, became hardcore socialists or even communists. Pretending to by one of the many, instead one of the few.
2/16 Examples in my little family. Another hiding place was to marry non-Jews. Male Jew & non-Jewish woman broke the bloodline. Female #Jew & non-Jewish male was a reason to not follow Jewish traditions. No Brit Milah, no Bar/Bat Mitswah, nada. Also examples in my little family.
3/16 Remember this was in the early 1950/60’s and the man of the house decided most. The deeper thought, no, the huge fear that something like the #Holocaust could happen again was the reason for this. Don’t show the outside world you’re a Jew, you could be round up next time.

Analysis: Why #Sanders lost the nomination: "Simple explanation" is that he got "trounced" when the race narrowed to 2; "many of Biden’s wins were blowouts, ballooning his pledged delegate lead to 311, a margin that is essentially insurmountable." | thread fivethirtyeight.com/features/why-b…
.@perrybaconjr "Why did Sanders do so badly in a 1-on-1 contest against Biden? I’d offer 3 explanations, none of which are mutually exclusive from the other 2."

1>"Sanders didn’t run a smart enough campaign."
#Bernie's campaign "seemed to think that #Sanders had a unique appeal to white working-class voters that would simply continue in 20," despite "clear indications" that some of his success in '16 w/ whites w/o college was more anti-HRC than pro-Sanders.

✔️#Biden is not a "moderate" #dem. He's running on a platform to the left of Obama & Hillary. If elected, he'd be the most #progressive president in our lifetimes.

This thread fact-checks a graphic circulated by #Sanders supporters that equates Biden & Trump.
✔️#Biden supports universal healthcare. He proposes adding a singlepayer Medicare option to the #ACA, open to individuals & employers. It could be immediately implemented, unlike #MedicareForAll which has a 4-yr transition.

✔️#Sanders introduced #M4A. It has 15 Senate votes.
✔️#Biden's plan to add singlepayer Medicare option to ACA follows the public/private hybrid that's most commonly used by countries with universal healthcare.

✔️Trump admin has filed suit to overturn the ACA & protections for people w/ preexisting conditions.

#SANDERS CONCEDED THE RACE 3/11, said millions decided his "friend Joe #Biden" was more likely to beat Trump. No blaming the #DNC, no cries of rigged election. He began: my #1 goal is defeating Trump. Time for ALL #Sanders fans & #dems to unite. c-span.org/video/?c486304…
#Bernie counted on overperforming w/ young voters, but nearly 3% fewer people under 30 voted in 20 compared to 16. This was the only demographic group where Sanders had an advantage. The drop in youth vote & the surge in ALL OTHER groups (who voted #Biden) cost Sanders the race.
#Sanders earned LESS of the vote in EVERY RACE in '20 when compared to '16. On average, he underperformed by 17.6%. He did 35.4% worse in VT. He was down 10.9% in #DemocratsAbroad primary this weekend.

#Biden has "outlined a suite of policies that, taken on their own terms, would be the most ambitious governing agenda of any modern #Democrat." If he wins, he'll be the "the most #progressive Democratic nominee in history." vox.com/2020/1/29/2107…
#Biden is "notably to the left" of #Hillary, #Obama, #Kerry & is advancing a #progressive platform. On #healthcare, his proposal for a public option would be a "significant expansion" of the #ACA & includes "expanded subsidies well into the middle class." reason.com/2020/03/04/joe…
#Biden has proposed a $1.7 trillion #ClimateChange plan "similar in scope to many candidates on his left." He has a $750 billion #education plan that includes increases to #teacher salaries & expanded access to #PreK. @reason 3/4/20

People who think that @BernieSanders gets us closer to @AndrewYang's vision for America don't actually understand Yang's vision for America: A Thread

#YangGang #EndorseUBI
#Bernie2020 #NotMeUs

(1/16)
First of all, #Yang wants a unified America. One where there isn't a huge political divide and so much hate and conflict. He doesn't alienate anyone.

#Bernie is incredibly divisive and angry and will only cause tensions to rise if given the nomination or the presidency.

(2/16)
The #FederalJobsGuarantee goes against Yang's vision because #Yang wants to redefine work in an age where jobs are being automated away and where work that has intrinsic human value isn't being recognized by the market.

For Sanders to say his AUDIENCE Is MOST progressive in American history does a disservice to those who marched and protested in 60s and 70s.
I’ve had a good response to this so I’m going to back up my claim with facts.
For instance, in the early 60’s mixed race marriage was progressive. AND illegal.

When I graduated from high school and was fully employed living alone, a male doctor told me he should call & tell my parents on me because I asked for birth control. In 60’s/70’s notion a woman could control her reproductive cycle was #Progressive plannedparenthoodaction.org/blog/birth-con…

Today we released research that reveals the political views of #GenZ shows a vast gender divide that will have significant implications for #election2020.

Here are a few major takeaways. #Thread
IGNITE partnered with Dr. Melissa Deckman @MelissaDeckman of Washington College to survey a nationally representative sample of more than 2,200 Americans aged 18-23 in the summer of 2019.
One, for the first time in American history, Gen Z women will surpass their male peers in terms of political engagement. The #politicalpower of these young women will be an asset to candidates who actively engage this demographic.

Thread: #coleg's Joint Budget Committee is seeing the consequences of the sad withering of #Colorado's once dynamic economic model. #copolitics @coloradobrt @DenChamber @ColoradoChamber @TeacherPension @biggsag
Many causes are now interacting in a non-linear way, including poor/stagnant #edcolo performance and uncoordinated, competing #CTE programs that leave frustrated employers with many unfilled middle skilled jobs...
As fewer people are equipped to compete in the 21st century economy, social safety net spending is skyrocketing. And with PERA only 41% funded (per the Fed), more pension crises are on the way when the economy and markets inevitably turn down...

Pls don't be rattled or deceived.

While Corbyn & Sanders have some similarities, they are not same, nor are UK & US the same: Brexit & antisemitic attacks against Corbyn are 2 examples.

Corporate #MSM tactics are the same in UK & US.

trying to leverage loss against #Bernie2020. Ppl compared the 2 campaigns. As Labour votes declined last night, some quickly piggybacked that #Bernie2020 & Left values were not viable.

I watched as Berners became heartbroken, worried Labor loss would infect U.S. momentum...

UK Labour loss is similar to our 2016 Dem Primary & election loss.

We need to focus on #Progressive ground game here in U.S. Don't listen to corp #MSM pundits w/ contrived polls throwing pasta at wall hoping anyone but #Bernie2020 sticks & corporate "manufacturing consent",

Here at #JSt2019 listening to Frank Lowenstein share a presentation about how much more dire the situation in the ground has become since for the prospect of territorial negotiations since Trump assumed office since newyorker.com/news/news-desk…
Frank breaks down the territorial implications of the “intermin agreement” known as Oslo. Areas A and B, the Palestinain population centers were transferred to Palestinian autonomy while 60% of WB has remained in Israeli control. Since, Israel has consolidated control of Area C.
This is a de facto annexation. Area C was meant to be transitioned to the Palestinians. But they are barely allowed to use it. They cannot drive over it without permits. They cannot build without permits they never get: they are subject to demolitions.

Gestern war ich bei einem Panel zu “sozialer Ungleichheit” bei @boeckler_de. In seinem Statement sagte @c_lindner, dass die Zahlen belegen: die Einkommensschere sei wegen der Migranten/Geflüchteten auseinander gegangen sein und der “Einwanderung in die Sozialsysteme”. Thread
Das ist FALSCH. Tatsächlich sind die oberen Einkommen zuletzt überproportional seit der Finanzkrise gestiegen. Die untersten Einkommen gehen seit Jahren zurück. Tatsächlich schreibt das @DIW_Berlin auf das sich auch Lindner bezieht:
“Die unterschiedlichen Einkommenszuwächse führen dazu, dass seit 2010 die Ungleichheit der verfügbaren Einkommen wieder signifikant zunimmt. Hierzu trägt auch bei, dass es aufgrund der Zuwanderung mehr einkommensschwache Personen gibt.”

What really is the Democratic Left?
Thread

Combating MSM, @DNC & the Right's misinformation campaign, propaganda & lies about where Left, Center & Right actually are politically w/ some fucking history & facts to protect our #Democracy from modern slavery #Neoliberalism.
French Revolution Nat. Assembly seating was origins of political Left & Right spectrum designations.

Left wanted reform, new constitution w/ Declaration of Rights of Man & of Citizen

Right wanted to continue Ancien Régime - monarchy & feudal nobility

2/
Examples:
1. Men are born and remain free and equal in rights.
2. These rights are liberty, property, safety and resistance against oppression.
5. The law has the right to forbid only actions harmful to society...

So @ewarren is a #progressive, you say? Only if you are willing to pretend that foreign policy doesn't exist (or, like most of the Beltway bubble, you're a reflexive apologist for American exceptionalism).

Let's break it down in a nice, meaty thread.

#ThursdayThoughts
@ewarren Despite all of her criticisms of Trump as unfit for office, she's had no problems in giving such a menace everything he's asked for -and more- in military spending. She only voted against the most recent defense budget when she decided to run for prez.
leftvoice.org/Elizabeth-Warr…
@ewarren And with regards to the military she's voted to overfund, Warren wants to "green" it, but not reduce it - that is, make it a more climate-friendly tool for aggression and global dominion. That's about as bizarre a policy contortion as you can make.

#Racism and #WhiteFragility

Important question to raise.


Please read this entire thread, and watch the youtube clips. (Yes, I have watched all, and three times now). This is important if we are going to overcome our internal racism.
Animus is NOT a required component in racism.
#Racism is by-product of #institutionalpower.

#WhiteFragility preserves 'order' whether or not intended.
Important to remember.
#WhitePrivilege, #InstitutionalRacism manifests sometimes in the form of blaming the blacks. It becomes 'code word bonding' and wittingly or unwittingly goes to preserve the status quo. Knowingly or otherwise, it is #WhiteFragility.
